Pumpkin Muffins (slightly adapted from this recipe)
My weird lunch one day.... Avocado toast with HB eggs (next time I'll keep the eggs on the side), and garden green beans (from the freezer) and the last of the roasted cauliflower.
Pumpkin pound cake with caramel glaze for the candle party.
The party food. I made it all ahead of time so it was easy to just pull things out of the fridge.
Jon's marching band competed in a band competition hosted by Appalachian State University. We got to drive through mountains at nearly peak fall color. Perfect weather and fall leaves... made for a nice drive.
The kids and I packed bags with snacks, lunch, and activities to keep us busy through a full day of band watching. It got really warm in the sun.....
... and then the sun went away... Brrrr....
Suzanne is made of tougher stock. I guess when you're from Western PA, you laugh at people bundled up in October.
Love Evan's sunglasses...
Sock knitting is perfect for band competitions.

It's so exciting to watch them perform in such a huge stadium. They did a great job!
We had dinner at Applebee's. Surprisingly good dinner.
Blurry selfie with my boy.
When we went back to the stadium for the rest of the competition, we went up in the VIP section and got to sit in the comfy seats, under the heat lamps. It was a very good idea!
The next morning I used leftover dinner rolls and made a cinnamon bread pudding/French toast bake for breakfast. It smelled amazing but I added a bit too much milk to it (says the crowd).
We enjoyed the last morning with family in the beautiful weather before Jon's parents and sister had to get on the road.
